Zara Larsson on course for first UK #1

Zara Larsson on course for first UK #1

Popstar Zara Larsson could bag her first UK number one this week.

Zara Larsson's first number one

Zara Larsson looks set to score her first number one in the UK on Friday, with midweek data showing it is a strong possibility. 

The 19-year-old's collaboration with the Clean Bandit looks set to jump straight to the top when the latest singles chart is revealed this week. 

Their track, 'Symphony', is a serious contender to take pole position from Ed Sheeran's 'Shape of You', which has been at number one for 14 weeks.  

Data shows that sales for the single are doing much better than Ed's single.

If 'Symphony' does knock off 'Shape of You', the single will be Zara's first ever UK number one, and Clean Bandit's third. 

'Symphony' is also racing up the charts on the Coca-Cola Top 40. It was number 23 on the April 22 chart. Zara's single 'I Wanna Know' is seven places behind at number 30.

Carol Ofori and Ricky take you through 40 of the planet’s hottest songs in our weekly chart show, the Coca-Cola Top 40, on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.
